My newest airsoft vortex BBMG

Unread postAuthor: dobey » Wed Feb 23, 2011 8:07 pm

This one is intended to be mounted in raised position around our airsoft town. I am running it on a high pressure nitrogen tank. The testing in the video is at 80 psi.

Mother of God, that is a honking HUGE chanber for a strafer! But, very nice work on the barrel and block! It needs a paint job! A few extras never hurt either, such as a sight or a grip. Also some fitting aren't pressure rated but that doesn't matter on a bbmg! Nice job man!

It does when a BB jams in the breech ;)

Very nice though, you have to drill some ports in the last inch or so of barrel, you already have a suppressor tube after all :D

Also, a word of caution when using BBMGs for skirmishing especially at short range when fire is concentrated - remember the jackhammer effect.

If this is going to be mounted in a fixed position I would designate a minimum engagement perimeter for safety reasons.

This makes me think of the predator shoulder mounted laser. It wouldn't be too hard to mock it up like that either.

Since you're chamber is so large, I would recommend a light spring plunger to assist with feeding. This is of course assuming that you don't already have one.

The video is hilarious.

Nice! though isn't the clear shield a little unfair for those on the other side?

Two thoughts went into me wanting that there.

First and foremost, players have a tendency to snap shoot, that is they pop up, lay down some fire and drop back behind cover without really taking the time to identify targets. With this gun potentially capable of hurting someone if they are fired on like that I wanted the player using it to feel like they could take their time identifying a safe firing scenario before the trigger is pulled.

Second thought was at our field most of the buildings and entrenched positions are traditionally taken out by grenades not direct fire so the shield would not really matter. If the player operating the MG is hit another can take up his place, but if the position is destroyed by grenade then the MG is no longer usable.

The shield only protects from the front, get any angle outside of 15 degrees and you can hit the user easily, so again it is really just there to let the gunner keep his head up and make sure he is firing safely.

Fair points, on balance it looks like the gunner is pretty much sniper fodder :)

Yep! We have had guys use riot shields and pistols before, everyone complained about it until we showed them how easy it is to kill them.

Same thing with the echo 1 minigun, intimidating at first but very easy to beat after you get used to it.

Adapt and overcome!
